[Verse 1]
     Dm               C              Dm                A        
From desert cliff and mountaintop we trace the wide de-sign,
Dm                    C              A            
Strike-slip fault and overthrust and syn and anti-cline
   Dm            C             Dm              A 
We gaze upon cre-ation where e-rosion makes it known,
    Dm        C         F     Gm     Dm      C      Dm     
And count the countless aeons in the banding of the stone.
C                                      Dm 
Odd, long-vanished creatures and their tracks & shells are found;
      C                                  Dm              A
Where truth has left its sketches on the slate below the ground.
    Dm                C                Dm             A
The patient stone can speak, if we but listen when it talks.
Dm     C     F   G           F   C         Dm  
Humans wrote the Bible...    God wrote the rocks. 

[Interlude]
Dm       C       Dm        A    
Dm   C   F   G   F    C    Dm

[Verse 2]
Dm                  C                   Dm               A 
There are those who name the stars, who watch the sky by night,
Dm              C                 A           
Seeking out the darkest place, to better see the light.
Dm             C                 Dm             A 
Long ago, when torture broke the remnant of his will,
Dm  C   F         Gm      Dm       C      Dm  
Galileo recanted, but the Earth is moving still.
C                                  Dm 
High above the mountaintops, where only distance bars,
    C                                    Dm               A
The truth has left its footprints in the dust between the stars.
Dm               C            Dm             A
We may watch and study or may shudder and de-ny,
Dm     C     F   G           F   C         Dm  
Humans wrote the Bible...    God wrote the sky. 

[Interlude]
Dm       C       Dm        A    
Dm   C   F   G   F    C    Dm

[Verse 3]
   Dm                C                   Dm                A 
By stem and root and branch we trace, by feather, fang and fur,
Dm             C                  A           
How the living things that are de-scend from things that were.
    Dm                  C              Dm            A 
The moss, the kelp, the zebrafish, the very mice and flies,
      Dm    C       F        Gm          Dm         C       Dm  
These tiny, humble, wordless things, how shall they tell us lies?
C                              Dm 
We are kin to beasts; no other answer can we bring.
    C                                  Dm           A
The truth has left its fingerprints on every living thing.
Dm                   C                  Dm               A
Remember, should you have to choose be-tween them in the strife,
Dm     C     F   G           F   C         Dm  
Humans wrote the Bible...    God wrote the sky. 

[Interlude]
Dm       C       Dm        A    
Dm   C   F   G   F    C    Dm

[Verse 4]
    Dm            C                Dm                A 
And we who listen to the stars, or walk the dusty grade,
   Dm             C             A           
Or break the very atoms down to see how they are made,
   Dm               C                  Dm              A 
Or study cells, or living things, seek truth with open hand.
    Dm          C      F       Gm    Dm     C    Dm  
The profoundest act of worship is to try to understand.
C                               Dm 
Deep in flower and in flesh, in star and soil and seed,
    C                                  Dm        A
The truth has left its living word for anyone to read.
   Dm                  C                  Dm         A
So turn and look where best you think the story is unfurled.
Dm     C     F   G           F   C         Dm  
Humans wrote the Bible...    God wrote the sky. 

[Interlude]
Dm       C       Dm        A    
Dm   C   F   G   F    C    Dm
